I'm sure they were, but my point is, when you pay $7300 that it will take a long time to make up that kind of difference. If you're spending $5 a gallon and getting double the gas mileage you previously were getting, You'd have to spend $3750 in gas to just break even. Now, let's say you were getting 25 mpg and now you're getting 50 mpg. It would take about three years to do that for most people. Of course, after three years, you'd be saving money!!

Ooops. My math was slightly wrong. It would actually be $3650 just to break even. My bad!

I wonder if the death of Bin Laden is a good thing for gas prices ... or a bad thing.

Monday will say, however I don't think it will have a measurable effect.

I don't think it will make any difference either. Its not like he was the leader of OPEC.

the only thing measurable by his death could be the 72 demons he gets to "play" with...much more likely than 72 virgins anyway!

Re: I've never been more proud of my Geo Metro

I am still getting 45 mpg without trying to much on my 95 Mazda Protege 5 speed. Clutch is starting to go and may need new struts. I have had it for 8 years now, it only got 37 mpg when i got it but a new throttle body and tune got it to 50 mpg with doing all the hypermilling stuff. I just laugh when i put 5 gallons and go 225+ miles.
